It is my first time in Winnipeg. The waiter Nick gave me a free coffee. You can see Red River from my table. Their bison tourtiere is very dreamy.

I ordered the Mediterranean breakfast, but asked for whole wheat bread with no garlic butter as opposed to garlic toast, and was told no problem. It came back with white toast, buttered. I asked her again to have whole wheat bread and she brought back an order buttered and said it would be an extra charge. I told her i had wanted it dry and not to worry about bringing g another order. Crossed wires, but was not impressed. Otherwise food was good, but a bit crowded. I will probably still give it another chance.

Lovely brunch! Service was great and we really enticed the food. (Only thing I was left wanting was a non-dairy milk for coffee/tea).

Best kept secret. Coffee is included in cost breakfasts, so not another $3!!!! All food great. Ambience special, consistent. Tons of speciality, custom and home made stuff . Gourmet food at fast food prices.

Best mussels and fries in Winnipeg. Make sure you order a loaf of their fantastic bread to dip in the sauce.

Promenade has become a favorite restaurant. Their fine menu has many unique, well prepared dishes, that are served by many friendly staff. I look forward to eating there each visit I make to Winnipeg.

Took my girlfriend for Valentine's Day. Set menu was delicious and filling, ensure you go with an empty stomach. Fantastic view of the bridge and the CMHR. It was the first day of Festival du Voyageur so a number of the staff had sashes round their waist (as did the candles in the windowsill). Both our server as well as the other staff who walked by were all very friendly, funny, considerate, informative, and overall pleasant to be around. Truly a lovely experience. Quite pricey but well worth it.

Our Valentine's dinner was a memorable evening. The food was great and so was our waiter. We thoroughly enjoyed every course. We will certainly be going to this restaurant again and will certainly want to go to any specialty evenings they are having.

Our server was attentive ,ambience pleasant.Poached eggs perfect ,nice bacon toast jam.The potatoes were a major disappointment.Big chunks of potatoes ,barely heated ,not crispy ,were neither hash browns or properly fried .A small portion of good potatoes would have been nice as we left most of them.

We made our reservations for 10am and by 1040am they were asking if we would be much longer because there was another reservation for our table...when there was an empty table the same size beside us. Our server was excellent though but the other lady was kinda rude and ruined my first time experience there.

The special, a turkey quiche, was dry and cold. The citrus cake dessert was tasteless. This was an expensive lunch but the experience was mediocre at best.

The French onion soup was great. Two out of four main courses were overcooked that is the lamb and the trout....a little disappointing. The creme brûlée was certainly not the best I have had. We are in no rush to return.

The onion soup is great. I enjoyed the boeuf Bourguignon very much. And my wife enjoyed the duck. One young lady at a table beside us was quite loud and that interfered with the otherwise pleasant ambience.

Really enjoyed our breakfast with friends. Very nice experience as it had been quite a while since we were there. Thankful that we could make a reservation as that took some of the pressure off trying to time it with our friends. Good job!

My friend and I enjoyed lunch at this restaurant. The service was excellent and the soup and Reuben sandwich were delicious! Parking is not the easiest to find in this area but it's worth looking for. We relax by the window and enjoy each other's company until a patron at the table next to us put on the smelliest hand lotion. We immediately we're stuffed up from the scent and had to leave. It might be nice to just have a sign up asking people to refrain from using scented products. It may not help but it might. I will definitely come here again.

The quality continues to be excellent. Our table enjoyed well a prepared meal, service was tops and the ambiance is a little like being in Europe. Looking out over the river and the Provencher bridge adds to the atmosphere. We've dined here New Years Eve for several years and have never been disappointed. Thank you for an lovely evening.

My granddaughter’s meal was very good but mine was just warm, but as we were going to the Concert Hall and there was a group of 35 (Christmas gathering) they arrived right after us, no time to return meal. Also noise level was due to large group.
